HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY CHALLENGES
TekSecute must deal with multiple challenges in managing guest communication across various hotel properties. Let’s examine a few of these in detail.
Scale and Complexity
Some of the challenges include the scale and complexity of a property. Some properties may only cater to 10-15 rooms, while others have hundreds of rooms and specialized venues. Some hotel organizations may be managed under a single brand, others double or triple- brands for a single property. A one-size-fits-all approach is all but useless in these situations. Organizations need to be able to scale the solution for their needs, ensuring that each property has the architecture in place to support their current and future requirements and multi-brand support.
Features and Maintenance
The hospitality industry is constantly changing and evolving, with its core mission to provide guests with a safe and comfortable place to rest. Guest comfort includes communicating with the front desk or housekeeping and, in many cases, setting up a wake-up call. Some services have become automated, but regular tests are necessary to ensure guests receive the expected service.
As properties become larger, employees often need to travel away from their desks to fulfill guest needs and general day-to-day work. Having a wireless connection can be essential for anyone from housekeeping to security. Ensuring that your telecom solution has a mobile option so personnel can stay connected and collaborate with the team while on the move is something that TekSecute excels at, which means that it is one less thing for a client to worry about.
Onsite or Hosted Platform Options
Offering an option for a client’s telecom solution to be hosted off-site or held on location is essential to clients. Some wish to have more direct control over their system and can ensure they have staff on hand to deal with anything that may arise. Other clients prefer to have their system hosted and place day-to-day operations in the hands of an aligned provider. TekSecute offers both solutions and will consult with a client, finding out their specific needs before offering a solution based on those particular needs.
PMS or Property Management Systems are often the core of a hospitality business. A PMS allows access to vital guest information and room bookings, tells the clerk if the room is available, or tells housekeeping when a room needs cleaning. The phone systems best suited to hospitality clients are those that can interface with the PMS system in use. This ensures the highest functionality and dependability for both the Client and their guests. TekSecute has the expertise to provide its clients get what they need and more.
Existing End Point Compatability
Organizations can allow the new system to connect with existing analog or IP-based phones to facilitate a gradual migration to a new system deployment. This enables specific departments or locations to transition first while others remain on the existing system until the time is right for a complete switch. It includes strategies for various hotel phone locations such as the front desk, back office, guest rooms, and conference rooms.
Safety and Telecom Laws Compliance
A hospitality communication platform can enhance guest safety and satisfaction by providing features such as intelligent call routing, enhanced 911 settings, compliance with Kari’s Law, customized announcements, and guest-specific services. Seamless communication and responsiveness can lead to positive reviews and increased guest safety.
Having encountered the aforementioned challenges, TekSecute has honed its expertise for the hospitality industry and beyond, opting for the ComXchange platform due to its all-encompassing features and pioneering capabilities that cater to the needs of any hospitality organization.
